  • When linking to stuff, please check that what you are linking to is spelled in the same way, instead of linking to an empty article.
  • Please try to spell as well as you can, or have someone check your changes if you're uncertain whether they make sense or not.
  • Format code using the <pre> ... </pre> tags.
  • Please use gif or png for screenshots and jpeg for images with smooth gradients.
